Website Design & Hosting
I don't sell widgets online, so why does my business need a website?
Websites once used to be a luxury; if you had one you were the odd one out. Nowadays if you don't have a web presence your business is invisible to potential new clients.
They're not just for selling widgets online either. Every business, whether lawyers or structural engineers, whether plumber or security alarm fitter, needs an online presence.
But how am I going to get new business through my website?
For eCommerce websites the link between their website and the orders they get is easy to see and understand. For professional services and the service sector it is a little harder. You will get new work through your website but your website works for you in a different way to eCommerce businesses. Your website forms a vital part of the validation process new clients go through to prove to themselves that your business is the one that they want to trust. It's a step in the recommendation to client chain.
Websites are really expensive though, aren't they?
They don't have to be. I can design and build a professional website for your business for a very competitive fee.
My bespoke package allows you to have a unique website. I will work with you to design and build your website how you want it. Design and build of your website is a one-off cost but you will need to factor in yearly hosting and domain name renewal costs which we can help you with too. Prices for a bespoke website start from £1750. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
Can we change the text on our website ourselves or do we need to pay for this?
All of my websites are built using one of the world's leading content management systems (CMS). This software enables you to edit pages on your website as easily as if you were editing a Word document. This means that control of the content on your website is with you. No waiting for a web designer to make amendments - you can action them immediately.
What else can I do with my website?
Don't be fooled by the simplicity of how content is amended on your website. The CMS has powerful features, from image galleries to forms, from social media integration to web analytics's. There are so many expansion options available, if you've got an idea then there is likely the expansion module available.
